At the conclusion of the Great Dividing Range and with Mount Macedon as its central backdrop, the Macedon Ranges region provides a diverse collection of things to see and do, being within the threshold of Metropolitian Melbourne. Known for the hospitality and relaxed atmosphere of its villages and towns

where you can eat and drink quality local produce is what attracts many visitors, although some visitors would argue it is for the boutique cellar doors of the region wineries, impeccable world class gardens that are open to the public, fresh farm gate produce, historic buildings and all manner of specialist art galleries.

Experiences that are a must see for the visitors are; Mount Diogenes or as it is commonly known Hanging Rock. Nature has provided this exceptional volcanic formation and its reserve that eludes mystery and intrigue. The reserve also hosts an array of flora and fauna. Mount Macedon with its tall mountain ash forest has fantastic walking tracks and the scenic road winds its way to the top. Immerse yourself in the views or the 21 metre high memorial cross at the summit  and is in recognition to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for Australia when at war.

Some of the more relaxed attractions of the Macedon Ranges region, would be to have a picnic lunch at the many reserves and gardens, sample the local wines at the boutique cellar doors of the regions wineries and to play a round of Golf at the regions pictures Golf courses.
